Jessie G. - Seeking Work in Bridgton

10.10 / hour

I have watched various children in my neighborhood and have dealt with all ages. I have watched babies, toddlers, young children, and adolescents. I have been watching children for five+ years now, so I do have experience. Kids generally respond to me very well. I love reading and arts/crafts. I'm friendly and open. I try to be stern yet fun. I like taking children to be outside. I am a fairly decent cook, so I could do food prep. I'm not yet CPR certified but I am hoping to be in the near future. I am also able to help with homework if needed. I have my own vehicle and I am willing to travel to you. Until May 10th, I am in college (I commute though). I have classes on Mondays and Wednesdays until 1, but we can always discuss that further! At those times, I will be unavailable but come summer, I will be available all the time except a couple of weeks (to be determined). I have watched three children (and still do on occasion) with Autism at different areas on the spectrum. With that in mind, I have been to an Autism retreat weekend where I provide respite care to children with special needs. I have references as they are needed, just ask! I am overall really flexible with time, charge and days.
